As Confucius once said, "Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." The same axiom applies to waterfowl hunting. Sometimes we make the sport more challenging than it has to be by burdening ourselves with too much gear
, traveling great distances in search of birds, and pushing our bodies to the point of exhaustion.
I've hunted ducks and geese for more than five decades, and over the years I've learned that great waterfowling doesn't have to be difficult. Following are several ways in which I've simplified my waterfowling and also increased my enjoyment of the sport by planning better, hunting smarter
, and fine-tuning my priorities.
